Troutdale man sentenced for sex abuse of minor
A 35-year-old Troutdale man was sentenced to more than 12 years in prison after sexually assaulting a minor.
Jacob Flynn Stebbins pleaded guilty to third-degree sodomy, unlawful use of a weapon, strangulation, two counts of third-degree rape, and attempted use of a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct. He received a 150 month prison sentence.
The investigation began in March 2019, when the Multnomah County Child Abuse Team learned Stebbins had sexual contact with a child under the age of 16. The abuse occurred in summer 2018.
"The trauma that results from child sexual, physical and mental abuse can manifest itself throughout a child's life and can have damaging lifelong impacts into adulthood," said Multnomah County Senior Deputy District Attorney Amanda Nadell, who prosecuted the case.
Stebbins admitted he used force and a firearm to have sexual contact with the victim, choked her, and attempted to take a photo of the victim while she was naked.
